The other shows Kellie and her husband, Kyle Jacobs, on the tarmac getting ready to board a military plane.

The Iraq trip comes just a few months after Kellie entertained troops at a USO show at Pearl Harbor. She learned a lot about that moment in history during her visit.

“It was a pretty powerful moment,” Kellie tells us. “I’m blessed that I have the opportunity to do that.”
